The Corner's 2012

I started this blog on impulse back in June and I'm glad I did. I really enjoy sharing snippets of my wardrobe and life with you, as well as my favourite tunes! My playlist now plays singles I love that came out (in the UK) after 6th June 2012, when I started my blog :)
*Playlist was changed on 07/01/2013*

I decided to do a round up of my content on my blog this year. (I should let you know that I have enlarged the smaller photos on my earlier posts and switched any photos with instagram-ish effects, with their unedited originals.)

TOP 5 Least Commented On Posts
- Whether these just didn't garner enough page views or were disliked,
I wanted them to have one more chance in the spotlight.

Everyday Sequins

I've entered the navabi Curvy Blog Award 2012 competition. If you enjoy my blog then please vote! Just click on the navabi icon on my right side column to vote! (It feels very awkward to plug myself... But you gotta do, what you gotta do...)

My blog is number 263. There are so many amazing entrants so check them out and vote for them too (or instead, that's up to you of course). You can only vote once but you can vote for more than one blog.

If you happen to be in the competition then good luck! I have already voted for two blogs, neither is myself haha... Simply because it feels weird to vote for myself...

Yesterday I was once again inspired by Serena van der Woodsen, I wore sequins during the day to go to college, with irrelevant shoes!

Bambi, Anyone?

Yesterday I took a plunge into the world of denim!

I'm sure I've mentioned before that I only own one pair of jeans. They are black and not, in fact, actual jeans. They are black jeggings.

While they are thick jeggings, I am very weary about wearing short tops with jeggings. I have done but it was experimental and so I tend to cover up with a long cardi...

Leggings are a type of hosiery, are they not?

Therefore I decided to buy some actual jeans... Dark blue ones!

I haven't owned a pair of blue jeans since I was 16 years old!

Today I wore blue jeans for the first time in so many years and I love them!

Here's my first outfit with them:

Chic Celebs: Kim Kardashian

These days, my life seems to revolve around college, procrastinating and lazing on the sofa with my man.

Not only that but I seem to be in a style rut. Each day I pick the easiest outfit and outfit repeat like crazy! I also don't have any income for fashion purchases. Grrr...

No wonder my blog has been experiencing a serious outfit photo drought!

To get me inspired, I like to, now and again, check out other people's style...

Kim Kardashian

I should tell you now, that I have never watched her reality show thus I know nothing about her apparently "annoying" personality.

I have just seen her in magazines and online...
(Ray J in that sex tape - be still my beating hormones...)

I just think that she's ridiculously beautiful and her style definitely inspires me.

Here are just 10 of her latest outfits (starting from the most recent) and suggestions to emulate her style:

The Red Leather Skirt

Inspired by Halloween

This year, I am not taking part in Halloween :( simply because as a Student, I just couldn't afford Halloween this year!

However, I decided to put my creative Halloween energy to good use.

One thing I hate to do at Halloween is buy a "costume". They normally just look cheap and generic and you rarely use them again!

And so... I've put together outfits using clothes that are out there now. Clothes that can be used again in a non-fictional outfit - yay! :)

Here are my outfit suggestions:

Morticia Addams from The Addams Family
- If you don't have black hair and you don't want to dye your hair then a wig is a must!
Also remember your red lipstick and black eyeliner.

Our favourite Disney heroines and our favourite designers will be joining forces to make some utterly beautiful gowns...

See the full article here.

Here are my top 3 favourites from the 10 sketches:

Tiana from Princess and the Frog in Ralph & Russo
- I just love the simple elegance to it.

My Blazer, My Bag

It occurred to me that I hadn't taken an outfit photo since July thus when I got home earlier this evening, I knew it was time to call my Mum for some snapping ;)

Guest Post: Fall Fashions and You - Bright Colours

Wondering what to wear this fall? The plethora of fall trends can make it hard to pick and choose just one. No matter what you choose, you're sure to look fantastic if you've got confidence. It's the key to that "effortless" look that so many celebrities pull off with aplomb.

Wondering which trend to wear this autumn? Eye-searing bright colours you see every summer are here to stay this fall. Neon colours are back again for fall in a big way, so stash your earth tones and pick up a fun maxi or a chunky sweater in orange.

Bad, Bad Linda

My sincerest apologies for not updating my blog recently!

College has been quite intense for me so I've been concentrating on my studies like a good (geeky) Student.

I have been neglecting my camera too... I must get it fully charged and I will start sharing my outfits (and life) with you ASAP!

Also just FYI - I was contacted by a Stylist, Anya Sarre, and I will be sharing a guest post by her this coming weekend!

My Return & Holiday In The Philippines #4

Dear Reader/s,

My apologies for my impromptu hiatus.

My British-high-speed-wifi-accustomed self just couldn't handle the slow 3G internet Philippines had to offer! Ipad users over there have my respect for their patience with it!

I have been happily browsing the internet at a Western pace since I came back last week however responsibilities in the non-virtual world delayed my return to my beloved blog.

Also, I haven't been able to take any recent outfit photos however I still have a multitude of outfit and sight-seeing photos from my month long holiday in the Philippines...

I took almost 500 photos on holiday so obviously I'm just posting the highlights haha...

First for the next outfit in my pile:

Welcome \(^_^)/

I've tried owning one too many blogs in my time and although some were popular in their own way, I've never quite found my niche. Lately I've been craving writing again thus I thought I'd give it yet another shot so here I go...
